Protecting your privacy and the confidentiality of your personal information is fundamental to the way we do business, and we take responsibility to ensure every InsureCert employee agrees. Our range of products and services we offer financial professionals continues to expand along with the technology. But, no matter how our business changes, we are committed to protecting and respecting your right to privacy and confidentiality.
Our Commitment To Privacy
InsureCert is committed to the protection of any personal information collected by it or in its custody, including any information transferred to a third party to fulfill the purposes for which the information was collected.
Personal information includes any information, recorded or not, about an identifiable individual. Examples of personal data that are identifiable include names, age, sex, social insurance numbers, health status, health history, financial information, transaction data, etc. It also includes information which can be matched with other information in order to establish an individual’s identity.
InsureCert’s Privacy Code
Our privacy code outlines our policies and procedures on privacy and describes the ways we ensure that your privacy and the confidentiality of your personal information is protected. It is based on the ten privacy principles outlined in Canada’s Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act also known as PIPEDA. Our adoption of these principles sends a powerful message to the general public that we have policies and procedures in place that control the collection, use and disclosure of personal information; it also reinforces our existing commitment to customer service.
Our privacy code balances the privacy rights of both you and your clients to ensure we adhere to the highest standards based on the following key principles;

We only provide third-party agents with the minimum amount of personal information necessary to complete the requested service or transaction.

Consent can be implied or inferred from specific actions. For example, if you would like access to specific InsureCert integrations, we must share your information with our partners to provide you the right experience, and your actions would amount to implied consent.

We have security standards to protect our systems and your personal information against unauthorized access and use. Such security protects your personal information at all times when it is stored in data files or handled by our employees.
